This was a most remarkable book to me. As I have learned to come
This was a most remarkable book to me. As I have learned to come to understand how the wounds I have taken in my life continue to impact me years later, and caused me to begin a journey for healing through my faith, my family, my friends and my counselor. I could relate to Mr. Campbell's deep ache for his brother, because I saw myself in his brother because I initally rebelled against the need for counseling or the value of counseling. My healing has begun to come about because I added counseling to all the other supporting parts of my life.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Beautiful Portrait of Brotherly Love
Campbell tells a deeply felt and deeply moving story--his own. Despite his profession as a pastor, he is unable to save the person most dear to him---his older brother. As a result, he becomes heavily involved in the Civil Rights movement, trying to do for minorities what he can't do for his brother--ease their suffering. But this book is more than a reflection on white man's guilt. It is an examination of the South, religion, culture, and most of all brotherly love. Though the prose might seem offsetting at first, it quickly becomes obvious how integral and illuminating it really is. No matter how many books I read, none has ever moved me as much as this one. I reread it at least once a year.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
